    Byzantine help

    I usually use 1/4" 16g rings when I do byzantine. I use anodized aluminum but the AR is the same as copper so it should be fine. That being said, you should use 3 connector rings rather than 2 as it makes it hold it's shape better. Also if you are making it for a female or someone with a smaller wrist you may want to use a smaller ring size and smaller gauge to get a thinner bracelet.

    Inlay Size Calculator

    thanks that helps so much. I was able to make a spreadsheet to calculate it automatically. here is a link to the spreadsheet, it will allow you to make a copy of it to use.

    Inlay Size Calculator

    I make a lot of inlays and use an IGP to get a sense of what it will look like when it is finished; however I was wondering if there was a way to calculate the final size of the piece before it is finished. I use 16g 1/4" rings with European 4-in-1 weave. I found an older post on the forum, but the link to how to calculate the size is now invalid. Does anyone know how to calculate the size or know of a tool online to use?

    Types of Material

    I personally like working with Anodized Aluminum but I primarily do inlays, bracelets and keychains. I don't delve into armor or high end jewelry so aluminum suits my needs just fine. Also it is readily available in the colors I need.

    Glow in the dark inlay

    Where do you even get glow in the dark rings? I looked on the main site and the only glow in the dark I could find were rubber rings and plastic scales.

    POW/MIA Flag inlay

    wow. well done, it looks absolutely stunning. I have just 2 questions, 1) was there a reason that you chose 6:1 instead of 4:1? I do a lot of inlays myself but always use 4:1 and just was curious. 2) how do you plan on mounting/hanging it?

    Armor Stand PVC Materials

    You could get like a JCPenny's, Sear's, Macy's (pretty much any standard clothing store you'd find at a mall) and get a box from there that would have clothing in it, then fold the shirt like a normal piece of clothing and wrap it up that way. you can even use like a soft cloth between the folds to keep it from jingling to much as well as to keep it from rubbing together. It should be pretty entertaining as he expects one thing only to find something way cooler instead.

    Dog Mail Planning a design

    this thread has a link to the inlay IGP and how to use it. That program allows you to convert pictures into chainmail and scalemail patterns to help you layout the design without having to figure it out by hand.
